Pablo Vargas Lugo is one of Mexico's fastest-rising contemporary artists, with an extensive resume of solo and group exhibitions there and abroad. This book, an artist's project highlighting a single installation--done for the ColecciÄn Jumex and then reinstalled at the San Paolo Biennale--documents the sprawling city of over 16,000 pyramids of varying sizes that he reproduced at both sites. Because they are too large to maintain in storage, this fleet of structures will have to be destroyed, at which point Skidproof View will be the only full record of their existence. Its design is inspired by a 1953 Mexican book on planets and stars.
